When I was a kid, Commander Keen was my favourite game. And it was awesome! Unfortunately, I only had one game in the series, and my parents weren't... keen... to send their credit card details over the phone to a company overseas. This was well before the Internet, mind you. So I couldn't get the rest of the games, even though I really wanted them. Instead, I started designing my own games and stories on a magnadoodle. That's how I developed my love of storytelling. Then, when I was in year five, my teacher read to me the Chinese creation myth. That triggered a spark in my mind, which over the years transformed into an invented world, with its own mythology, languages, and history. Tessa Eden grew up upon the shores of Australia's sunny beaches, frolicking in the sand and exploring the beautiful underwater world. Her father being a software engineer, and mother an illustrator, it was natural that she would grow to combine the two, becoming a digital artist. She now spends her days painting digitally, and creating 3D animations and CGI for animation studios in Sydney.
